cute postage stamps

When I received the mail from our partner company last Thursday,I noticed a cute postage stamp on the front of an envelope.I took this pic with my mobile phone camera without meaning anything then.Wow,this is an illustration of "The Old Man who made Cherry Trees Blossom (花咲か爺さん)" which is famous old story in Japan!

......Huh?Wait,wait...something is wrong with this... Oh,I don't know why,but there isn't person of considerable importance in the illustration!Yes,It makes me wonder.However...

On the following day,I could see this postage stamp when I received the mail from other company!!  hahaFinally the old man who is a main character in the old story appeared before my very eyes!And I waked to one fact then.

Did you notice about that?Yes,this is a set of two postage stamps! haha

Aw these are lovely. I used to collect stamps. Britain and Asia were my favourites!

i used to collect a lot of stamps, my collections are still there, only the progress of getting new stamps are getting slower, people hardly write airmails now...my friend still owes me a letter!! maybe we should write to each other too!!

mine are mostly used stamps too...some i get from my parents, they kept old ones here and there...i think writing letter is good in a sense that there is a human touch to it, looking at handwritings instead of digitally structured words...
